This week I want to share with you a few things that I spotted on the web that I don't think you will want to miss. They are not our normal types of I Spy shares, but I think you will love them and find die cutting inspiration in them just as much.
The new Tim Holtz fall releases have been added to Sizzix.com. They should be arriving in stores soon (if they haven't already) and trust me, this release has so many dies that you will need in your collection. To view them all, click on the banner image above or visit: http://www.sizzix.com/catalog#facets=exclusive~tim-holtz-alterations-fall-halloween. I love when Sizzix adds a page like this one to their website because it makes it easy for me to see just what is new and what I am going to need (e.g. die cutting supplies) to shop for to add to my die cutting collection. I like print these new release web pages to use as an easy shopping list or inventory guide.
If you are a inventory or list keeper like me and want an easy way to keep track of your Tim Holtz Alterations wish lists and inventory, then you really need to check out his fabulous iPhone (and Android) app! It is a free download and such a great tool for keeping track of not only your Alterations wish lists and inventory, but also for all of Tim's other products. To learn more about it, click the image above to visit the App store.
Another thing I want to share with you today is the Die-Cutting 101 page on the Sizzix UK website. If you are not from the Uk or Europe you might not realize that Sizzix has an office in the UK that maintains a second Sizzix website and blog. They also have a design team made up of members from the UK and Europe. I especially love their Die-Cutting 101 page on their website because it is loaded with great tips, project instructions, explanations of our different dies and die cutting equipment. You can find the Die-Cutting 101 page at: http://www.sizzix.co.uk/101. While you are there, be sure to also check out their video page for even more great product tips and instructions: http://www.sizzix.co.uk/videos.
